Nritya Sanchit - The Enchanting Journey of Indian Dance

Nritya Sanchitis an enriching dance experience that unfolds the grandeur and legacy of Indian Dances and their evolution from origin to the present day. Choreographed on the basis of Bharatmuni's Natya Shastra, this conceptual and philosophical dance drama is the first of its kind where the character of Bharatmuni comes on stage and where all seven Indian classical dances are performed together.

Nritya Sanchit unfolds through three episodes and lyrics and music is specially crafted to suit the concept. It all begins with Tretayug where greed, jealousy, anger, hatred have replaced love and peace. With Lord Indra's request, Lord Brahma creates the 5th Veda - Natya Veda, by drawing essence from the revered four Vedas.

Lord Brahma hands over this Natya Veda to Bharatamuni a sage, expert in Abhinaya who eventually trains his 100 disciples and performs before Lord Shiva. The inspired Lord Shiva himself performs his heavenly dance AnandaTandava. GodessParvati joins in to perform Lasya- he feminine counterpart. Bharatmuni learns its techniques from Lord Shiva's disciple - Tandu.

The 100 disciples of Bharatmuni go down to earth and spread this art form. Thus Dance descends to the common folks. The great Bharatmuni authors Natyashastra - an encyclopedia of Performing Arts.The glimpses of the 7 Indian Classical Dances - Bharatanatyam, Odissi, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniattam, Kathakali and Kathak and variety of regional colourful Folk Dances, is the highlight of the programme. The summing up is on realizing the worth of Sadhana, to maintain the purity of this glorious art and on a social note. Nritya Sanchit has staged more than 5 successful shows!

Symphony

Symphony is a harmonious fusion of diverse dance styles giving rare glimpses of exclusive dance sequences. Symphony intricately weaves together seven Indian classical dance styles, traditional folk such as Garba of Gujarat, Giddha of Punjab, Ghoomar of Rajasthan, Rock n' Roll, Russian Gypsy, Afro Jazz, and even dance choreography using the positions of different Yogasanas, Foot tapping numbers with American Jazz, hip-hop and many moreā€¦.

Symphony is significant in a way that the classical dancers themselves are trained in these diverse styles, making it all a feast for the soul. It represents a great fusion in tune with the present buzz words such as "Inclusion", "Diversity", "Tradition with Modernity", etc.

Symphony has been performed quite a few times, adapting variations!
